Hello! Charlie, your friendly neighborhood bike mechanic here. I wanted to take a moment to mention a string of top notch customers we dealt with yesterday. Two insisted on handshakes after much thanks, one left us with a few loose beverages for after-hours decompression, and one forwarded us his Saturday Lollapalooza ticket as he was out of town riding his bike! Thank you for thinking of us gentlemen, and for valuing our service and expertise.

We just finished up this super light Cannondale Super Six Evo. Our customer had three requirements for this project. First, make it as light as safely possible. Second, it had to have a power meter. Third, equipped with Shimano Di2. With that in mind we started sourcing all of the components. After researching frames we settled on the 2016 56cm Cannondale Super Six Evo High Mod (1147g). We wanted to build a bike that no only could climb but it had to be able to descend. After that we gave AX Lightness a call and went with their Ultra U24T wheel set ( which tipped the scales at 795g!) Ergo 4200 Bars (175g) Rigid 120mm Stem (79g) and Leaf plus saddle (93g). Other notable parts are the carbon fiber chain rings by Carbon-Ti, EE Cycles brakes, modified Di2 Sprint Shifters, Di2 Wireless transmitter hidden in the seat post and we also mounted the Di2 junction box under the saddle just to keep things nice and clean.

Smithy recently built up this custom Specialized Shiv for one of our favorite customers. Check out ALL of the electronic shifters controlling this Dura Ace drivetrain. This is one of the meanest looking race bikes we’ve seen in a while.

Dear Facebook friends, I hate hearing stories about bikes being stolen, but when it's a good friend that I've spent time with teaching them how to build the bike, it hurts a little bit more. Please keep your eye out for this very distinct Soma Double Cross disc cyclocross bike. Custom built Hed/ DT Swiss wheels, Wound up carbon fork, Blue King, Thomson bits. If you see this bike not being ridden by my friend Joel Zach ( in the image ) please contact the Police. Thanks

Dear Facebook friends, we just got word from one of our buddies that his custom Soma Double Cross was stolen from his apartment. If you see someone riding this bike ( NOT the man in the picture ) please contact the Chicago Police immediately. Please share this post with your friends and other LBS so we can track this bike down.

Thank you,

Cycle Smithy
